Charleston Area Medical Center's cancer services provide comprehensive and complete care that focuses on the patients' medical, practical and emotional needs. The program has been accredited since 1956 and offers the most highly trained and nationally certified health care professionals in the region. Our David Lee Cancer Center sees more patients than any other cancer center in the state, and 20,000 patients visited it last year for administration of more than 9,000 chemotherapy treatments.
We have dedicated inpatient and outpatient specialty areas that offer a collaborative approach to medicine. Our physicians follow the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines, and provide treatment to patients of all ages. Cancers treated at our facilities include, but are not limited to, breast, lung, prostate, colon, ovarian, pancreatic, cervical, liver, skin/melanoma and leukemia. If you have cancer symptoms, it is very important to have them checked by a doctor. If cancer is not the cause of your symptoms, your doctor can help figure out what the problem is and request a course of treatment if necessary.
